Cedar Plank Salmon

Grilling season is finally here! That makes me a happy girl. Not just because of BBQing (which is, of course, awesome), but because I absolutely despise the cold weather. Winter really gets me down- I feel depressed, unmotivated, tired, lazy, etc. As soon as I’m able to, I plan on moving to San Diego, California- or possibly some other warm-weather state that has access to healthy food 😉 For now, I am going to soak up every ounce of sun/warm weather I possibly can. Life is just better in the summer.

So, I first tried Cedar Plank Salmon from Seasons 52 (restaurant) and fell in love. I actually order it every time I’m there. I don’t always love salmon, but when it’s cooked right it’s delicious. If you’re not a big fan of salmon, give this recipe a try! My mom really doesn’t like salmon and even she loves Cedar Plank Salmon. It is important to soak the cedar grilling planks in water for at least one hour prior to grilling. (This was my first time using cedar grilling planks and I didn’t fully read the instructions beforehand and just wet them rather than soaking them for an hour). Sooo mine did go on fire a bit and got burned. Not to worry- this may happen- just keep a spray bottle with water by the grill to put out flare-ups. Instead of rubbing the ingredients on the salmon one by one, like I did, you could also mix them all together in a bowl first and then rub the mixture onto the salmon if you prefer. I hope you enjoy my Cedar Plank Salmon as much as I do! Happy Grilling! 🙂

Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your grill to medium/high heat
  2. Place your salmon on a dish and rub the maple syrup all over it with your (clean!) fingers
  3. In a bowl, mix together the dijon mustard and minced garlic cloves
  4. Pour on top of salmon and rub in with your fingers
  5. Carefully shake the dill over the salmon, so it is all covered
  6. Add salt and pepper
  7. Place your soaked cedar planks on your pre-heated grill, close the top
  8. After 3 minutes, flip the cedar planks over and place your marinated salmon on top. (If your salmon is big like mine, you'll want to cut it in half and place one half on each cedar plank- don't do it how I did in the picture unless you're up for the challenge of getting it off the grill)
  9. Close lid of your grill and cook for about 12-15 minutes, depending on how well done you like your fish
